In a recent interview, Olivia opened up about the difficulties she faced while growing up as a child star and about facing an "identity crisis" at the age of 14.

Olivia Rodrigo's childhood was about self-doubts  

In an interview with Elle, Olivia revealed that her life changed instantly after she was cast in the Disney series. She mentioned that it got lonely after she was often surrounded by adults, mainly agents, managers, wardrobe people. She said it was a multi-camera sitcom, so every set was within a yard of each other and one just had to walk to different sets. She stated that it was at that time when she experienced, "an identity crisis on steroids." Recalling the pressure she went through, she said that she was struggling with self-doubts such as who cared about her, how should she treat people etc. The most unique pressures were when “most 14-year-olds aren’t in a room with adults being like, ‘So, what’s your brand?’”
